1.1 Goods subject to the following descriptions. If you order any of our artificial grasses, you should be aware of the following qualities which will form part of the description of the goods of on our website:
(a) Creases. The structure, storage and / or transit of the artificial grass may cause natural creases in the product. Creases will ordinarily flatten within 3 months of the supply and / or installation of the artificial grass and should not be considered a product defect. We recommend that the artificial grass in unrolled and exposed to warm sunlight before installation in order to reduce visible creases. You may also try gently pulling the edge of the artificial grass to encourage the creases to smooth or expose the latex backing of the artificial grass to sunlight and gently stretch by hand.
(b) Lines. A visible straight line may appear in the artificial grass which may have been caused by the devices used during the manufacturing and / or alignment process or during the cutting process. Lines can be removed by exposing the artificial grass to warm sunlight and gently manipulating the fibres by hand or with a power brush to remove the line. Lines should not be considered a product defect.
(c) Colour differential. Although we have made every effort to ensure that the artificial grass supplied will be consistent in colour, it is possible that artificial grass from separate batches will have a slight colour differential due to the manufacturing process. A slight colour differential in the batches of artificial grass supplied should not be considered a product defect.
(d) Reflective surfaces. Our artificial grass is manufactured using polyethylene and polypropylene and therefore reflective or magnifying surfaces such as glass, clear plastic or otherwise could cause scorching of the grass. It is your responsibility to prevent any such damage occurring to the artificial grass and we will not be liable for any scorching which occurs. We are able to provide a repair service for scorched artificial grass, for a fee, if you require.
(e) Dark and light patches. There may be instances where the artificial grass has dark and light patches. This is caused by the grass fibres being compressed in some areas during storage and / or transit. We recommend that you expose the grass to warm sunlight and manipulate the grass fibres with a brush to relax any compressed areas. If the compression is severe, you may wish to use a mechanical power brush to lift the grass fibres. Dark and light patches which can be rectified as suggested above should not be considered a product defect.
(f) High traffic zones. Any areas of the artificial grass which are subject to high traffic may flatten over time due to pressure on the grass blades, causing these to compress. This can alter the appearance of these sections of the grass compared to those which have not been been subject to compression. This is natural wear and tear and we will not be liable for any flattening which occurs due to compression over time.
